On Oct. 11, the Ministry of Agriculture signed a memorandum of cooperation with Shanxi government about the construction of the National Luochuan Apple Terminal Market. On this date, construction started on the first specialized national agricultural market.

Luochuan of Shanxi province, called the "apple town" of China, is famous for its apple production.

China has established a batch of core agricultural bases with high production, large scale and worldwide impact, said Zhangtaolin, the vice director of the Ministry of Agriculture. The structural change of production and marketing requires specialized agricultural markets to set up a platform for domestic and overseas markets.
